Soooo… after covering my recliner I had this antique chair that I bought at a garage sale for a whopping $5.00 it looked tacky against my newly covered recliner.
I had enough fabric left over to recover the seat of the chair. This was a much easier project than making the slip covers, no pins, no Velcro, all I needed was the fabric, trim, scissors, screwdriver and glue (I recommend goop glue instead of using a glue gun, the advantage of using goop is that you can manipulate the fabric before the glue dries, but the glue gun dries instantly and once applied it cannot be undone, the other option is an industrial staple gun.
First I used the screwdriver to take off the old seat
The next step – I cut a piece of fabric to cover the seat with enough to turn over, approximately four to five inches on each side.
The next step is I turned over the fabric manipulating the fabric to the shape of the seat and glued it in place (you can also use an industrial staple gun for this) If using glue allow 24 hours to dry.
Place the seat back on the chair and secure with the screws. I embellished with cord (optional)
I made a decorative cushion to complete the look and now my chair is not jealous anymore.
